Hyundai Excel - the first independent model of Hyundai, before the company was engaged in the assembly of Ford cars. The first Hyundai Excel was released in 1974 in collaboration with Mitsubishi Motors. The car has been focused on the middle class of society, and quickly gained success in the domestic market of Korea. A year later the company begins to export Hyundai Excel of large parties to the Middle East, South America and Africa.
The second generation of Hyundai Excel is available as a three or five-door hatchback, as well as a four-door sedan. Interestingly, the rear door hatchback can be opened from the outside and inside. The luggage compartment volume is not striking because speakers wheeled niches, uneven floor and a thick litter. But hatchbacks due to the rear seat backrest, which was asymmetrically divided and can easily recline fully or in part, a useful trunk volume increases markedly. At the sedan such a possibility is not provided.
Hyundai Excel was equipped with three different engines: 1.3 liter (59 hp) and two units of 1.5 liters of various capacities - 72 and 84 hp. Engines are arranged transversely and aggregated with 4-speed manual, and 5-speed - only on request. Power steering is also installed only on request and it is not for all markets. The second generation were produced from 1991 to 1994, and then Hyundai Excel replaced by Accent.
